- Pasta Brioni Neighborhood Italian Dining: Pasta Brioni is the epitome of an East Coast Italian restaurant, only it's in Arizona. If you've ever eaten at a family-run Italian restaurant back East, you'll appreciate what Pasta Brioni is all about. From the second you walk in the door to this Scottsdale restaurant, the management and wait staff treat you like family - in fact, it seems that there are so many regulars at Pasta Brioni that many of them may be family. Rich wood paneling and a gorgeous wood bar, linen tablecloths, stained glass lights and Rat Pack music playing all add to this incredibly inviting ambiance. The food is authentic and delicious! * GetOut 2005 Best Meatball Sandwich! There are sandwiches, and then there are sandwiches. And then there's Pasta Brioni's meatball-and-bread concoction, which, while billed as a sandwich, is actually an entire meal that just happens to be tucked into a roll. * Phoenix Newtimes 2000 Pasta Brioni...best Italian food in AZ. -Drumcore 2002 Billed as a neighborhood Italian joint, Pasta Brioni brings a little East Coast to the Valley. The atmosphere is a mix of class and comfort, and the kitchen does it right with entrees like chicken Parmesan, linguine pescatore, and veal marsala - just like mamma mia used to make. Celeb dish: Brandon Webb Authentic and delicious Italian cuisine served in a neighborhood setting, Pasta Brioni is a favorite with folks who miss their East Coast "ristorantes." Settle in to one of the sumptuous leather booths and enjoy a glass of vino. After sampling classic dishes like farfalle al la Luigi, chicken Luca Brasi, and capellini primavera, you'll feel like one of "la familia." Webb's pick: Veal marsala. Celeb dish: Wayne Gretzky If you're looking for authentic tasting East Coast Italian without having to get on a plane, look no further than Pasta Brioni. Spinach and ricotta dumplings, capellini primavera, and the Da Vinci pizza are just a few of the choices on the menu Gretzky describes simply as "great Italian." How authentic is it? It "reminds me of my time in New York," Gretzky says. Pasta Brioni in Golfweek Pasta Brioni - Old School Italian Great Place to Score Brownie Points with the Wife, As the Waiters All Look Like Movie Stars Restaurant Review: By Melinda Mims, Director Concierge Services and Lulu Hatter, International Food Aficionado I'm always on the look out for Italian cooking that would rival the days I spent in Italy. Barely any elbow room at the dining table because of the abundance of food, family, and friends; at some point, someone would start singing and maybe some dancing, but it wasn't a party, it was life. I'm excited to say, I have found such a rival here in Scottsdale; Pasta Brioni, Neighborhood Italian Dining.
